This was a fascinating museum about the area including the when and why of the settlement. Anyone with an interest of history would enjoy the visit. There was far more than any history book could relate. It only takes an hour or so to go thru but well worth the time. There are lots of relics from the early era... More

The Acadiana Culture Centet is in the same area as Vermillionville so plan on doing both in the same day. This is s free venue. There is a 35 minute film about the history of the Acadians before they arrived here. A small museum is also very interesting. Great activity for a hot day.

Nice exhibit & film on Acadian history. Film is about 30 minutes long & very informative. Recommended to all who visit this part of Louisiana.

We visited here again because the staff are so friendly and helpful with places to go and things to do. Springtime is an excellent time ot visit Cajun Country because there is a festival, or two, going on pretty much every weekend. If you don't find much to do in Lafayette or the surrounding area while you are here, you... More

I can't recall anything I disliked about Acadian Village. There's good food, good music, and Acadian history everywhere. You can visit a doctor's house and see original equipment from days gone by or check out a blacksmith at work but be sure to visit at Christmas time. I is a treat that you won't soon forget, from the awesome lights... More

Liked the displays. The movie was so so. Not a large place but a good place to pick up some history.

This small cultural center tries to cover a lot of ground and doesn't provide much depth. I left somewhat confused and wanting to know more. There are lots of pictures of people who could have provided wonderful oral history, if this display were a little more technologically adept.

This Centre gave an interesting insight into the origins of the Acadien people. Staff ran video specially for us. This was good but gave a few historical inaccuracies in the use of English when they meant British. (Scottish soldiers do not like being called English!!). Exhibition also good. Go here before Vemillionville. Free entry but they welcome donations.

We have been here several times and if you are new to the area you can understand some of the culture from watching the films and viewing the articles in the museum
